Hello, again.

IMG_7348Peek-a-boo! I see all of you. I am so humbled with the love and support I have received this past month on my social media in regards to my blog. Each and every one of you have encouraged and inspired me to continue with my blog, and tell my story as it is. Social media is a wonderful place to grow your blog and grow your network (mine being the mommy network). Being a stay-at-home mom is very rewarding, yet at times, can be very lonely. Thankfully, having a supportive mom network on Instagram and on the blog helps with lonely moments while sitting in a quiet room nursing my newborn baby. I’ve welcomed over 800 new mom bloggers, and influencers across all my social media platforms, and I thought I’d take a moment and introduce myself with some unknown things about me.

  1. I was born in Armenia (a small Europearmenia-mapan Christian country), but moved to the US when I was 2.
  2. My younger sister is my backbone, and biggest motivator for my blog entries. She’s always cheering me on, and encouraging my next blog posts; including this one.
  3. I spent 18 years doing competitive gymnastics, and hold awards such as State Champion, and Regional Qualifier. My gymnastics career came to an end due to an injury which dislocated my hips, and broke my wrists. (I’m all better now though).
  4. I am a bookworm amongst my friends. I’m totally okay with that.
  5. In high school, I asked my crush to Prom in front of my math class; He said yes. Now we’re married and have 2 boys.Gerbera Daisies
  6. If I ever have a girl, I would name her Amelia Belle.
  7. I love random facts.
  8. My favorite season is Autumn.
  9. My favorite flower is the Gerbera Daisy.
  10. I handwrite all my blog drafts before typing them up.
  11. I love planners, stationaries, calendars, and ALL “teacher-y” stuff that helps keeps things organized.
  12. My favorite drawer at home is my laundry drawer. It smells so clean and fresh.
  13. My favorite number is 4 because sometimes “3rd time’s the charm” doesn’t cut it.
  14. Everyone complains about the L.A. traffic; it really doesn’t bother me.
  15. My 3 favorite colors are pink, yellow, and white.To Do List
  16. Belle is my favorite Disney Princess.
  17. Sometimes, Motherhood scares me, and I wonder if I am cut out for the job.
  18. I love country music.
  19. I have an inner cowgirl, and I wish I lived in Nashville.
  20. I love making lists, and “To-Do” Lists.

Although I can go on and on, I’d like to leave it off here and continue another time. I love meeting new moms, and building a strong network because after all, no one gets us moms like other moms. I would love to hear a few things about each of you, so I can get to know you a little bit better too.

  1. Where are you from?
  2. How did you get into blogging?
  3. What’s your favorite thing about motherhood?

Thanks again for all the wonderful followers, you truly make blogging worthwhile.

Rock on mamas,

    Nice meeting you! I’m originally from South Korea but currently living in Houston, TX. Blogging is my way to really dive into things and share the information/experiences! Plus it’s so fun networking. My fav color is pink too <3

    I loved this post! I am from Southern california, mom of 2 girls. I had always wanted to blog but my SO gave me the boost I needed!! My favorite thing is they always want to snuggle!

    • HookedOnStories says:

      Isn’t SoCal just the best? I wouldn’t change the snuggles for anything. Enjoy them while they’re young.

    • HookedOnStories says:

      Nice to meet you all. Time seems to be short on all of us. Always wanted to visit U.K. Hopefully one day there will be enough time to travel there.

    I love to read too. My favorite flower is also the Gerbera Daisy. I’ve been blogging for over 7 years but I wrote on a beauty board for 6 years before that.

    • HookedOnStories says:

      My husband thinks it’s weird that I handwrite things first, I simply tell him it’s the teacher in me. We’re a little old school. 😂

    Thanks for sharing those things about you. We have something in common, my favorite season is autumn as well and I’m a stay at home mom too. I am from Mississippi and I got into blogging because I love to write. I have journal and I decided to blog about things instead. My favorite part about motherhood is simply seeing my toddler laugh and smile. Memories last a lifetime

    • HookedOnStories says:

      It’s so nice to meet you. Autumn is the best, but I do wish I could experience autumn in a state where all the trees turn colors and the leaves fall so I can make a huge leaf pile and jump in. I would enjoy that so much, I mean my toddler would enjoy that very much. Hehe 😂

    I love Gerber Daisies too and I just told my oldest daughter the other day that she should name her daughter Amelia. It is such apretty name. I am from upstate NY but have been living in VA for the last 10+ years. I jumped into blogging feet first because I got tired of just telling my friend. I wanted to join, hear and share my world with others. Recipes, tips and tricks, diy and fitness shared to the fifth power when you blog. My favorite thing about motherhood is the unconditional love. Even when the kids are mad 5 seconds later they are good. They care when I’m sad or mad and it’s all genuine.

    So awesome that you married your high school crush and are still together! Now to answer your questions – I am from South Florida, I got into blogging just by taking a leap of faith! My favorite part of motherhood is making memories!

    • HookedOnStories says:

      Nice to meet you. Making memories is the best part for sure. Oh, and taking pictures 😂 Lots and lots of pictures.
